AMSTERDAM, Netherlands (AP) -- U.S. midfielder Michael Bradley, the son of U.S. national team coach Bob Bradley, scored in SC Heerenveen's 2-2 tie Sunday at FC Utrecht in the Dutch league.

Bradley scored in the 27th minute to give his team a 2-0 lead. Danijel Pranjic also scored for Heerenveen, but Alje Schut and Sander Keller scored in the second half for the hosts.

Ajax moved into second place by beating AZ Alkmaar 6-1. Klaas-Jan Huntelaar, the league's leading scorer, got two goals to bring his tally to 18 this season.

Kenneth Perez also scored for Ajax, which played with a man advantage after AZ midfielder Demy de Zeeuw was ejected in the 43rd for a deliberate handball in the area.

Ajax has 36 points, ahead of Feyenoord and FC Groningen on goal difference but three points behind leader PSV Eindhoven. Heerenveen is seventh with 31 points.
